Great Elephant & Orangutan Film
See the film “Born to Be Wild” and donate to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust refuge for orphaned elephants and to the Orangutan Foundation International for orphaned orangutans. This is an upbeat film, with adorable young elephants and orangutans being reintroduced into the wild. The film shows orphans rescued after poachers have killed their parents. Local caregivers play with, sleep next to, and feed orphaned baby elephants and baby orangutans. After elephant films were shown here by the Boulder Rights of Nature group , people donated $ 65,000 to elephant protection groups. Greenpeace and Rainforest Action Network have been campaigning to stop the expansion of palm oil plantations into the forest habitat of orangutans. They pressure food brands to boycott palm oil from plantations that are made by cutting down forests that are orangutan habitat. They persuade logging companies to stop cutting down orangutan habitat. The Sumatra Orangutan Conservation Program helps orangutans in Sumatra. The Save the Elephants group is a leader in funding groups that work to stop the killing, stop the trafficking , and end to the demand for ivory.
